HALONG BAY, Vietnam, 31 January 2019: Heritage Line will launch a new cruise boat for sailings in the Halong and Lan Ha bays, starting this September.
The maiden voyage of a new cruise boat named “Ylang” will take place in August and by September it will begin commercial sailings ahead of the main tourist season.
Currently, the cruise company is offering a grand opening promotion with discounts of up to 20% with the starting rate of USD422 per person, per cruise.
Ylang will be the only vessel in Halong Bay offering a wellness theme for a three-day/two-night cruise.
The vessel comes with 10 cabins on two decks with around 40 sqm of floor space in the six “Signatures Suites” and 50 to 54 sqm in the four “Regent Suites” on the upper deck.
Ylang will feature a spa area with a sauna and a steam bathroom, while Yoga classes will be on offer along with daily Tai Chi lessons.
Heritage Line claims it is now the only cruise operator offering a three-day/two-night trip to the remote areas of Lan Ha Bay.
Cruises start and ends at a pier on the small island Cat Hai near the city of Hai Phong (90-minute drive from Hanoi).
